HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and start to the new year! I didn't think we would be beginning the new year this way but here we are! As you know, the government has made the decision to close all schools to help slow down the increasing infection rate which should help reduce the risk in our area. Our school is open to children of key workers and those who fit the government criteria of being in school. For the rest of our children, remote learning will be provided which children can access everyday to engage in lessons and communicate with staff and fellow pupils! You will find the timetable for the first week below. If you cannot engage with the online learning, you will need to contact our school office to arrange a pick up time to collect a work park for your child. This is compulsory! The home learning pack will need to be dropped back off at school when your child has completed it at a specific time and our time is Between 9:30-2:30 on Monday 8th February.
I will try to speak with everybody each week to make sure they are either in school, using the remote learning or working through a printed pack. If you would prefer to send in any work that your child has completed via email, you can do this by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to speaking to you all soon!
Please follow the link above for access to free online Art, Craft and Design resources for those children who are working from home
Also, for anyone wanting to practice their newly learnt Spanish skills at home, you will find short Spanish tasks to complete on our Year 5 Teams page in the 'files' section! VAMOS!
